are always a hoot. let's talk about the debt ceiling debate. we are all focused on this week and the president has been talking about it. what is your view on whether spending cuts should be part of the debt ceiling debate? i think that would be a serious mistake. i'm a republican, i have been so since i voted for ike in 1962 and let me tell you i've mistake. you are not talking about one thing that has to do with cutting spending. you're talking about everything and he paying your debts of the guys in the congress talk about an republican republicans drama. and every one of them has something to do with wanting ... and now you have to pay it. and you better pay and where your country is clearly facing a dire consequences. it shows that you don't give a whit about who's president. >> do you agree with the president and you think that we are risking what? a selloff in the market? 2001. >> what's going to happen if it comes to the worst case scenario here? >> somebody will say, don't forget, we all $16.4 trillion. half of that is owned by private people like your mother or some
. now today we talk about the debt ceiling and we talk about its impact, this debate for the people who are watching, and, getting to this craziness we see the market reacting in a way you can't anticipate. what would happen to our 401(k) if congress he said they have to get together, i was thinking two words, "good luck." whether they can't do something? >> if they don't raise the debt ceiling and let's say we get debt downgrades, the market has a fit basically and drops as they did in 2011, all our investments will get hit. the stock market will go down as it did in a big way in the summer of 2011. on the other hand, if they extend the limits, the debt ceiling limit and do something more, maybe not a grand compromise, something more in terms of deficit reduction, my guess is the market will kind of shrug it off. they won't get upset. the issue is in the end what happens in the run-up read the political run-up to the waiter with the market reacting as we are going down the wire because they will not default. the u.s. will not default on its debt. adam: you have the billionaire coke bro

to compromise on this debt ceiling fight. it is important to talk about the broader contours of this actual debate. a year and a half ago we had an increase of 1 $2.1 trillion. and we are through that. and now we are up to $17 trillion. so, in my view to be candid. there is only one party that is remotely serious about dealing with this party. if we are talking tactics, what do you do if you are house republicans? you have leverage. you have talked about them already on this show. one of them is the debt ceiling fight. and the final one is the continuing resolution which is the stop gap thing because we haven't had a budget for four years. i agree with you. i think the president has the high ground there. he has a big weapon in his arsenal there. you have to give the president his way on that. >> if you pay the debt but you have to apportion out the money, the term for that is default. >> mark, my basic view is this is going to get done. but i'd like to move the last minute further out. if these guys need three to six months to do it up right and get a compromise. i'm willing to give them f
broader macro issues, and i think it's the debt ceiling and sequestration talks, are really keeping the lid on the market so i don't suspect you'll see a real move up and through 1475 unless there's clarify coming out of washington. that's what i think the market really wants to hear. >> it sure does. rick, do you want to hear that? >> no, i don't think we will. but i do think the republicans are probably going to be more inclined when they come up with the weekend restreet strategy to pay more attention to the sequester side of the equation, my opinion. i agree with greg ip. if you're looking for the big run up in interest rates in 2013, at least in my opinion, you're going to be disappointed. here's what i still can't reconci reconcile. the beige book didn't give us a positive grow on jobs and on the 30th of month we'll look at the annualized pace of growth in the form of gdp, looking for 1.5%. another year where we don't see big tax revenues coming in because we're not creating a lot of jobs. the economy is growing less than 2%, and we're still bragging about what a great year it

yesterday talking about the debt limit, debt ceiling. he's talked about our economy. i think it's worth noting that since 1923, when the president was required to furnish a budget in a time deadline given for furnishing that budget, 90 years, 90 years the president is required by law to furnish a budget. since 1923 those, those ensuing 90 years, there were apparently 11 times when presidents have been unable to get the budget to congress as required by law. and most of those -- well, some of those 11, there were very good reasons. but it's interesting to note in the last 90 years, out of the 11 times that the budget from the president has been late, four of those 11 have been under the obama administration. we're also informed that there is a chance once again, like there was a year and a half ago, that our credit rating of the u.s. could be lowered again. by another credit rating agency. some have tried to paint it as a different story, different picture, but for those of us who recall what happened, s&p made it clear that they didn't believe that the united states was serious about de
of reaching the debt ceiling, yet both sides seems locked in congress are not going to talk about the debt ceiling. speaker boehner says it can't be done unless we cut spending at the same time. so having watched this for more than 30 years in congress, what are the odds of avoiding going over the cliff given were both parties are? >> the odds are that we won't do it. it's a matter of faith. it's a matter of consequence. i mean, those who say okay, let's toy with that, they are toying with the american economy and they are toying with the global economy. and so, i think it is somewhat -- it seems great to talk about to the ninth, but the closer you get to that class, the less likely it is that you'll find the u.s. over it. the mac for me ask one other in the loco to grind out third start. he told "politico" last week that a balanced approach replacing the sequesters spending cuts and revenue should accelerate tax refund is fully possible this year for work and by person basis. does that square with people estate tax reform is going to because of scheduling. need to do with the limits of ku

talking earlier about the articles this morning saying how dangerous it is to use the debt ceiling to essentially put the full faith and credit of this country in real jeopardy. so i'm very concerned about the consequences of doing that or even threatening to do it immediately and, also, it really shifts the focus, instead of it being on the debt ceiling, it should be elsewhere, including tax reform. host: if tax reform does not happen in 2013 -- guest: it may not happen. host: what is the impact of that? what is the implication? guest: i have said all along it is important for us to look beyond the label "tax reform." for example, we urged early on tax reform bringing the rates down to 25% individual and corporate, they -- without indicating how in the world they would do that. some said, we can use the exemptions and deductions. we have already begun to use them, i hope, in an effective way. i think we need to go beyond the rhetoric of tax reform and talk about what the substance of what it would be. again, one of the problems with this effort by the republicans to escape the rea
